GOVERNOR RALPH NORTHAM (CBS THIS MORNING/D-Virginia/@GovernorVA): Well, it has been a hard week. "We learn from our mistakes and I'm a stronger person", Northam said.

Fox News host Jesse Watters said Republicans now have "get out of jail free cards" for their own scandals because of the blackface and sexual assault scandals currently embroiling Democratic politicians in Virginia. The Virginia governor told King that he would support an investigation into the accusations and "if these accusations are determined to be true, I don't think he's going to have any other option but to resign". The current governor, Ralph Northam, a fellow Democrat, was under pressure to resign following revelations of a racist photograph that appeared on his page in a medical school yearbook and a subsequent admission that he once wore blackface to a Michael Jackson dance contest.

Consider: In just 10 days, Gov. Ralph Northam has admitted to being in the racist photo - then denied it, then admitted to wearing blackface on a separate occasion. In his first press conference after the photos surfaced, Northam nervously made jokes about how hard it is to wash off shoe polish and almost attempted the moonwalk.

"It's obvious from what happened this week that we still have a lot of work to do", Northam said in the interview, conducted at the Executive Mansion. "The multiple detailed allegations against the Lt. Gov. of Virginia are deeply troubling", Booker wrote on Twitter Friday evening.

Herring, who also is white, is second in line to the governorship should the top two officials quit, but he too has resisted calls to resign.

A very forward thinking attitude but, unlike the players themselves, we can afford to look back and reflect upon the performance. Here are three talking points from this crucial result that saw the Red Devils fire into the top-four.

Democratic Del. Patrick Hope said he wants to introduce articles of impeachment Monday against Fairfax after two women recently accused the Democrat of sexual assault in the 2000s.

Talking with Gayle King, he said he's learning about the ways in which white privilege has impacted his life, but he also referred to slaves as "indentured servants".

Gov. Ralph Northam tells @GayleKing: "I have thought about resigning, but I've also thought about what Virginia needs right now". Fairfax instead has called on "all appropriate and impartial investigatory authorities, including the FBI, to investigate fully and thoroughly the allegations against me". Of Herring, he said that "just like me, he has grown".

Fairfax has said that encounters with both women were consensual.

Justin Fairfax, D, also faces calls to resign after two women accused him of sexual assault. Vanessa Tyson went public with her allegation against Fairfax, claiming he forced her to perform oral sex on him during the 2004 Democrat National Convention in Boston.

The poll, taken late last week, showed that by a wide margin those surveyed said Herring should remain in office.

Many Democrats who had carefully withheld judgment after the first accusation against Fairfax, saying the matter needed to be investigated, immediately condemned him.

If Fairfax were to leave, it's unclear who could replace him as lieutenant governor.

Northam said he planned to focus on addressing issues stemming from inequality, including improving access to health care, housing, and transportation. He's a Republican, which is giving the Democratic officerholders another reason to try to keep their positions.
